Broccoli and Pancetta Spaghetti

Broccoli and Pancetta Spaghetti

This is a lovely quick pasta recipe from the new Silver Spoon Quick and Easy Italian Recipes cook book (I'll be giving one away in a competition soon). The whole family enjoyed it and it was gobbled up without complaint in super quick time. It really is a perfect mid week meal.

The key (I think) is to cut the broccoli into really small florets so its nice and soft - the kids seem to prefer it like that. I might add some peas next time to up the vegetables but it's delicious as it is.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
